In this work, a dynamic model of a high-temperature integrated solar combined cycle power plant is presented. The system includes a three-pressure combined cycle power plant coupled to parabolic trough solar collectors. Thermal storage, a heat solar steam generator, pumps, heat exchangers, and several controllers are also included in the system. Solar energy is used to produce additional steam to be supplied to the steam turbine of the combined cycle power plant. The integrated solar combined cycle system is based on the heat transfer fluid arrangement, exploiting solar energy to produce steam. The analysis is developed by a dynamic simulation model including detailed algorithms for the calculation of the performances of system components. Special control strategies are included in the model in order to accurately manage the steam production of the heat solar steam generator.

Abstract

In this work, a dynamic model of a high-temperature integrated solar combined cycle power plant is presented. The system includes a three-pressure combined cycle power plant coupled to parabolic trough solar collectors. Thermal storage, a heat solar steam generator, pumps, heat exchangers, and several controllers are also included in the system. Solar energy is used to produce additional steam to be supplied to the steam turbine of the combined cycle power plant. The integrated solar combined cycle system is based on the heat transfer fluid arrangement, exploiting solar energy to produce steam. The analysis is developed by a dynamic simulation model including detailed algorithms for the calculation of the performances of system components. Special control strategies are included in the model in order to accurately manage the steam production of the heat solar steam generator.
